Calling all photographers! $25,000 Women’s Initiative Grant available

Alexia Foundation

Happy Sunday, Funds Fans!  Some good news for photographers and photojournalists involved or interested in women’s rights.

The Alexia Foundation is pleased to announce the call for entries for the 2014 Women’s Initiative Grant which will provide a $25,000 grant for a project to be produced on a significant issue involving and affecting women anywhere in the world.

The Alexia Foundation’s main purpose is to encourage and help photojournalists create stories that drive change. While their traditional grant guidelines put no limits on the subject matter for grant proposals, a number of proposals about women’s rights in the last few years have been so powerful that they have been compelled to create a grant specifically on issues relating to women.

Unlike the first Women’s Initiative grant, which specifically focused on abuse of women in the United States, this call for entries is open to photographers anywhere in the world and is intended to permit the photographer to produce a serious documentary photographic project encompassing any issue involving women anywhere in the world.

Deadline: June 30th, 2014 at 2p.m. EST.
